Watch Now @ Subscribed to my YouTube Channel!

It’s the school holidays and so I planned a family trip to 香港 Hong Kong. It was a real fun and enjoyable family getaway for us as we got to eat a variety of Hong Kong food, explore new places and we had so much fun in Hong Kong Disneyland. The weather in end of April is quite hot hence we tend to sweat a lot.

Hong Kong Trip 2019 Play, Eat & Shop - Upon arrival in Hong Kong, there are many ways for you to travel from Hong Kong International Airport to the city or your hotel.

Upon arrival in Hong Kong, there are many ways for you to travel from Hong Kong International Airport to the city or your hotel. Some of the options include taking the Hong Kong Airport Express, bus, taxi, Uber or you can book the Hong Kong International Airport Transfers from Klook which save you lots of time waiting for your transport upon arrival in Hong Kong.

I highly recommend you to get the Octopus Card to explore and travel around Hong Kong. You can use the Octopus Card for public transport (MTRs, ferry rides, bus and train rides), dining, shopping, entertainment and more. I purchased my Hong Kong Octopus Card from Klook and I just had to pick up the Octopus Card at Hong Kong International Airport upon landing. So easy and convenient! And yea, remember to return your Octopus Card to get your HKD50 deposit back.

We have tried Yat Lok Restaurant & Yung Kee (鏞記) the previous Hong Kong trips, we decided to try Kam’s Roast Goose (甘牌燒鵝) this trip. Ordered their signature charcoal roast goose, roast pork, braised egg, century egg and roast pork ribs. I personally prefer Yat Lok and Yung Kee’s roast goose over Kam’s Roast Goose.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
